With the Minnesota State Legislature well underway — and State Representative Cal Bahr’s (R-East Bethel) introduction of Constitutional Carry in the State House — gun-grabbers are steaming mad.
They know Constitutional Carry is on the march all over the country.
They know this is the best opportunity Second Amendment supporters have had in years to GO ON THE OFFENSE with pro-gun reforms.
And they’re worried that Minnesota — the state they had penciled in as the next state to pass their radical anti-gun schemes — could be lost for good!
So they’re pulling out all the stops to browbeat members of BOTH parties into sweeping Constitutional Carry under the rug.
And without your IMMEDIATE action, I’m worried they could just get away with it.
As you’ll see, this petition insists that your State Representative and Senator cosponsor and do everything in their power to pass Constitutional Carry.
The truth is, there’s nothing the gun-grabbers fear more than an all-out fight over Constitutional Carry in the Minnesota State Legislature.
You see, if passed, the Constitutional Carry Bill would restore the right of every law-abiding Minnesota citizen to carry a gun to protect themselves and their families – WITHOUT going through a bunch of bureaucratic rigmarole!
This is the way it’s been done in Alaska, Arizona, Wyoming and Vermont for years.
But in just the past few years, Constitutional Carry has passed in Arkansas, Kansas, West Virginia, Missouri, Maine, Idaho and Mississippi.
In Maine it passed with a Democrat-controlled House. In West Virginia and Missouri it passed with a Democrat Governor just like we have right now.
So if you and I can ramp up enough pressure in St. Paul, there’s no reason Constitutional Carry can’t soon be the reality here in Minnesota.
Despite the hand-wringing of nanny-staters like Michael Bloomberg, Constitutional Carry states are not plagued with shootouts and vigilante justice.
I know that comes as no surprise to you.
Just the threat of running into someone who is armed is enough to convince many career criminals to think twice!
With the pro-gun majorities Second Amendment supporters delivered in 2016, now is the time for politicians to deliver for us.
It’s time to ensure promises are kept.
The good news is, just forcing a public, roll-call vote puts you and me in a win/win situation.
Those who vote against Constitutional Carry will only be setting themselves up to run into a pro-gun buzz saw at the ballot box.
Even if Governor Dayton vetoes, he’ll only be ensuring gun rights become a central issue of the 2018 Governor campaign — which could effectively guarantee another massive debacle for anti-gun politicians.
But first things first.
With the Minnesota State Legislature now in session, there’s no time to waste.
It’s up to you and me to PROVE we still have the momentum by generating as many cosponsors to Constitutional Carry as quickly as possible.
The more we can generate, the LOUDER our voices will be.
Even as I write you, Minnesota Gun Rights is working on an all-out plan to force BOTH houses of the Minnesota State Legislature on record on the Constitutional Carry Bill, including:
>>> Collecting at least 100,000 signed petitions from Second Amendment supporters — like the ones I’ve enclosed with this letter — insisting that their legislators take action on Constitutional Carry;
>>> A massive mail and email program all across Minnesota designed to generate pressure on politicians;
>>> A statewide media tour where I’ll work talk radio and local TV explaining why Constitutional Carry is so important for Minnesota;
>>> Hard-hitting Internet, radio and newspaper ads calling out anti-gun politicians who oppose Constitutional Carry.
I know this plan is ambitious.
It’s not cheap either.
But I’m afraid it’s the ONLY way you and I are going to stand up to BILLIONAIRE anti-gun activist Michael Bloomberg and the rest of the gun-grabbers who think Minnesota should be their personal playpen.
The great news is, you’ve seen your action make a difference.
Whether it’s stopping Bloomberg’s anti-gun schemes or holding politicians accountable during the 2016 elections, Minnesota Gun Rights’ members and supporters have already proven we can make an enormous impact.
But it’s up to you and me to keep up the pressure on the Minnesota State Legislature.
So in addition to signing your petitions, won’t you please agree to your most generous contribution TODAY?
I know that’s a lot to ask for, Site.
But with the Minnesota Legislature now in session — and new pro-gun majorities in St. Paul — this is the best opportunity to pass Constitutional Carry you and I have had in years. Maybe ever!
We must act.
We must ensure the victories Second Amendment supporters won at the ballot box aren’t wasted.
Every dollar you can give will help me put Minnesota Gun Rights’ plans into action.
Minnesota Gun Rights
P.S. With the Minnesota State Legislature now in session, it’s absolutely critical you sign your Constitutional Carry petitions to your State Representative and Senator.
I believe we can make Constitutional Carry a reality in Minnesota.
But it won’t happen without you.
